Pin-up of the Day- The Emperor's Royal Guard!

Version 1 Royal Guard by Taylor Lymbery
Version 2 Royal Guard by Taylor Lymbery

There are some Kenner action figures from the whole of the Star Wars line that just stand out as being totally super awesome. One that stands out as being totally BA is the Emperor's Royal Guard. For the most part, these guys didn't have a lot of screen time in the film, Return of the Jedi, but most people that I talk to, always add Kenner's Royal Guard to their favorites. His head doesn't turn. His under skirt kind of gets in the way. He has the potential to always get dirty due to his soft good capes, and yet he's one of my favorites of the entire Kenner Star Wars run. He's that cool for some reason. I still have my action figure of this guy from when I was a kid. He was a stocking stuffer for me back in Christmas of 1983. He doesn't have his lance, but I seem to remember my action figure not coming with the accessory, or  I might have lost it. I do have plans to get a lance for him one day. I did a pin-up of him for last years Fan Days Convention. He sold last minute of the show with several other pieces I did that I did there at the convention. He's pretty popular cause I ended up doing another that was a commission for my buddy, Jeff, my co-host on the awesome podcast, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff". Looking at the two, I prefer the second edition. I'm trying to decide if I need to do another version of  him before the next Fan Days convention in a couple of weeks. You can also see the second version art piece here. The first version is here


I do have a table for the Fan Days Convention on October 19-21. I'll be there with a lot of new work to sell, including two new pin-up girl posters, a new issue of Xenex the Bug Man and custom toys. Jeff will also be selling some Marvindog media merchandise! Stop by, say,"hi", and show your support. I'll see you there!

My Star Trek Tees are ready to be voted for! You'll have to create an account for welovefine or sign in to your account to vote but never mind that; go vote! I'll leave links for the shirts below their respective picture.

Cortical Stimulator design by Taylor Lymbery

 I could almost make a drinking game on how many times the mighty cortical stimulator has saved someone's life! Go see this design on here!

Oh, Chakotay! design by Taylor Lymbery
No one can melt Captain Janeway's heart away like this Maquis hunk, leaving Katherine only saying, "Oh, Chakotay!" Go see this design on here!

Child's Play design by Taylor Lymbery
It seems silly, but every kid that liked star trek that I knew, wanted an Enterprise to ride around on. It would've been awesome. Go see this design on here!

Space Anomaly design by Taylor Lymbery
There was one episode in the Voyager series where Neelix asked why Voyager had to go and inspect every anomaly it came across. Shortly after, the ship was trapped in a sub-space hole in a nebula; and then after that, about to be devoured by a living ion cloud monster; and then after that... You get the picture. Go see this design on here!

Tricorder Theatre
I've read that the scene in Generations where Data is using his tricorder as a puppet, is thought to be one of the worst jokes in the Star Trek universe. When I saw this scene in the theater, I laughed so hard I had soda shoot through my nostrils! Needless to say, I still find it kind of funny. Don't judge... Go see this design on here!

There's been an update to the store tabs on both Xenex the Bug Man, and this site. All of the print on demand issues, cafepress stores and commissions info will be under the new store tab on both this site and the Xenex the Bug Man site. Hopefully this page makes shopping a bit easier. Go and check it out! 

I just updated the Xenex the Bug Man website with rather grand news that the long awaited issue 4 is now up for order. It's a great looking comic book! Head on over to the Bug Man site and see what I'm talking about!

Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
